Usually the two large o-rings leak, causing to loose oil pressure and lubrication of the VVT actuator. Try cleaning and using new Viton o-rings and assemble everything as it should be. (One large o-rings goes in the front of the VVT Actuator the other one is located in the other end towards the engine.)

Miata roaster sells a kit for ~$50 shipped, including new mazda crush washers, those two big o-rings, and many more. Worth every penny.
